Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are playing in the derby of the round 18 with the aim to decrease the point difference with the leader of the league – Barcelona. Both teams are performing amazingly, although the high number of draws moved them away from the first position.
Sevillistas had their star moments in the autumn, including winning their group in Europa League and continuing leadership in La Liga. For achieving this results helped the excellent performance at home. Sevilla won 13 of overall 15 home games in all competitions. In December the team wasn’t that confident, although they didn’t lose once, they earned just six points. The explanation for this record is that Sevillistas played three of their four games away from home.
Atletico Madrid is again a tough team to win against. Until this moment only Celta, in the third round of La Liga, and Borussia Dortmund, in the Champions League, won against Los Colchoneros. The common thing between these defeats was that both games were away from home. Atletico is the best home team in La Liga this season, but as guests are ninth. Diego Simeone’s players won just two times in nine away fixtures, while the draws were five. Los Colchoneros ended 2018 with three consecutive victories and three points deficit from Barcelona.
Both teams are strong at home and know how to defend. The “hosts” factor will be crucial for Sevilla, and they will not lose. We expect a tactical game with a strong performance in defence and a low number of chances for a goal. I will back Double Chance: Sevilla to Win or Draw and Under 2.5 Goals, with Draw 1-1 Correct Score.
